A Brief Course in the Calculus
by William Cain - D. Van Norstrand company , 1905
This book is intended not only for the class-room, but for the student without a teacher, who hopes to acquire some knowledge of the working principles of the Calculus in a short time. The book presupposes some knowledge of Geometry ...
Calculus 1: Course
by Peter Saveliev - Intelligent Perception , 2010

by Matt Boelkins - Grand Valley State University , 2013
Where many texts present a general theory of calculus followed by substantial collections of worked examples, we instead pose problems or situations, consider possibilities, and then ask students to investigate and explore.
Elementary Algebra and Calculus
by Larissa Fradkin - Bookboon , 2013
This elementary book embodies a systematic and efficient teaching method that marries modern evidence-based pedagogical findings with ideas that can be traced back to such educational and mathematical giants as Socrates and Euler.
Basic Calculus Refresher
by Ismor Fischer - University of Wisconsin , 2008

by Russell A. Gordon - Whitman College , 2006
The text represents one person's attempt to put the essential ideas of calculus into a short and concise format. It may not appeal to a wide range of mathematicians, but it should provide most students with a good foundation in calculus.
by H.W. March, H.C. Wolff - McGraw-Hill , 1917

Funny Little Calculus Text
by Robert Ghrist - University of Pennsylvania , 2012
This text is meant to be read and enjoyed. It assumes you've seen some Calculus before: you know what to do (differentiate / integrate) and how to do it, but you don't know what it really means -- like everything else in life ...
Integration and Differential Equations
by R.S. Johnson - BookBoon , 2012
Part I introduces the standard techniques of elementary integration and, in some cases, takes the ideas a little further. In Part II, ordinary differential equation are explored, and the solution methods for some standard types are explained.
A Reform Approach to Business Calculus

The author presents beautiful, interesting, living mathematics, as informally as possible, without compromising logical rigor. You will solidify your calculational knowledge and acquire understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of the calculus.
The Calculus for Beginners
by John William Mercer - Cambridge University Press , 1914
The author has been guided by the conviction that it is much more important for the beginner to understand clearly what the processes of the Calculus mean, and what it can do for him, than to acquire facility in performing its operations.
Calculus Made Easy
by Silvanus P. Thompson - The MacMillan Company , 1914
A book for the mathematically eager who know some algebra. First published in 1910, overall a million copies have been sold. Most talk of continuum and its infinities is suppressed. A remarkable and user-friendly approach to the study of calculus.
The Calculus Integral
by Brian S. Thomson - ClassicalRealAnalysis.com , 2010
Elementary introduction to integration theory on the real line. This is at the level of an honor's course in calculus or a first undergraduate level real analysis course. It prepares the student for a graduate level course in Lebesgue integration.
by Arthur Henry Barker - Longmans, Green, and Co. , 1896
All teachers of engineering and applied sciences generally now recognize the vast superiority of graphical over purely mathematical methods of imparting instruction of almost every description. The former are much more convincing to the student.
Concepts of Calculus
by Christopher Cooper - Macquarie University , 2008
This is an introductory course on calculus for those who haven't studied it before. It emphasizes the concepts rather more than the technicalities and contains many examples and illustrations. It's particularly suitable for economics students.
Introduction to the Elementary Functions
by Raymond Benedict McClenon - Ginn and company , 1918
The book covers some parts of plane trigonometry and analytic geometry, followed by an introduction to the differential calculus, including differentiation of simpler algebraic functions and applications to problems of rates and maxima and minima.
by Frederick S Woods, Frederick H Bailey - Ginn and Company , 1922
This book is adapted to the use of students in the first year in technical school or college, and is based upon the experience of the authors teaching calculus to students in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology immediately upon entrance.
